OUR PRIVACY AND COMPLIANCE POLICY
Any change to this policy will not negatively affect our collection, use or disclosure of personal information prior to the change, and any change to this policy will comply with the applicable legal requirements.
Personal information defined
Personal information is information that can be used to identify and/or contact you as an individual. This may include such information as your name, address, email address, ID/SIN numbers, income, age, credit records, loan records, and the like.
Collection/Retention of personal information
Personal and financial information is collected in order to provide you with the products and/or services you have requested, to assist in the management of our business, and to meet legal and regulatory requirements. This information will not be used for any other reason without your consent.
If you decide you do not want your personal information to be used for any of the above, you may “opt out” of one or all of these purposes at the time your personal information is collected, or at any later time, by contacting us. Should you choose not to provide us with this information, or to “opt out”, we may not have sufficient information to provide you with our services. For employees or employee candidates, failure to provide us with the permission to collect this information may preclude our ability to employ you.
Additional information required to perform our services may be requested upon your engaging KRP, or at such later times, as it becomes necessary. In all cases, information will only be collected for the purpose of providing you our professional services, or for employee candidates, to assist you in gaining employment.
The personal information provided is retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law. Information collected from employee candidates may be retained indefinitely so that KRP can contact you about other positions and job openings.
Updating/correcting your personal information
We will make every effort to keep your personal information accurate. You are encouraged to advise us of any changes to your personal information that may affect the services we are providing to you. You may do this by making a request in writing to us at KRP (Kestenberg. Rabinowicz. Partners. LLP).
You may also update or correct your personal information by phone, if you first confirm your identity by providing key information. Be prepared to provide:
• Your name
• Your complete address, including postal code
• Your phone number
• Your Social Insurance Number
Once we have confirmed your identity with this information, we will update or correct your personal information in our records.
